Be Your Own Hero


So many decisions in our adult lives are made when we really don’t even know what we want in life. When we are in our twenties we are really just exploring … testing the “truths” of our parents and exposing ourselves to new worlds. In your thirties you’re supposed to have some sense of where you want to be in life, and subsequently spreading out to accumulate more of what you need to sustain this goal. Then, for the next twenty or thirty years we continue to grow: with families, better jobs, and more of that precious commodity known as security. We must perpetuate this until we are old enough to where society will deem it acceptable to do something else … and all this is apparently based on what we decided to do in our twenties.

So much time and energy just to please everyone else … never mind what you want … or infinitely more important? What God wants for you.

I don’t know about any of you … but I sure as hell wasn’t ready to make decisions like that in my twenties! I’d been steeped in religion as a child in a missionary family, but I knew NOTHING of what it meant to be completed by God … to have soul and mind and body simply be an open conduit for LOVE. If I had known I certainly would’ve made different decisions. Now that I do know how can I not change my life accordingly??

All these expectations that are put on you? These mental manipulations by people who are supposedly trying to help you? The perceptions that you will be a failure if you do this, or rejected if you do that?? They are empty, meaningless, hollowed out shells … the very structures that they all built before, but that never satisfied or completed them. Why waste your time filling someone else’s shell?

We are all unique fingerprints. We all have our own powers. We all have our own individual purpose … but we will never find out what it is if we busy ourselves living someone else’s life.

Be your own fingerprint and allow that shell to be broken … refuse to accept the limitations that others put on you … just let go of them and let them fall away … dissolve.

From there on out begins the adventure … be your own hero … to follow wherever Bliss, Intuition, God, the Universe, LOVE guides you to be.

By the way, that last part? LOVE?? Never lose that as your core, and never balk at where It takes you … Love is your Guide.

Peace and Love.


This post is a result of meditating on my prior post, “Follow Your Bliss – Joseph Campbell“.


Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
